Karla Powell Make-up Artist

This Valentines, Illamasqua are celebrating with their new, special collection called I’m The One!” For personal reasons this is a collection I will most certainly never forget. 

I had the most amazing opportunity to be part of this Valentine’s campaign photo-shoot by assisting Illamasqua’s legendary creative director Alex Box. This amazing opportunity was the prize for winning the Distinction in Make-up Artistry Award last October. 
To work with Alex Box was a dream come true, therefore this mini collection will always have a very special place in my heart. You can imagine the excitement when the collection arrived in the post last week! 
As soon as I opened the package I fell in love with the products immediately, i especially couldn’t wait to wear the lipgloss after seeing Alex use it on set!

The mini collection includes:
A NEW Red Lipgloss (Shade: Touch) £14.50
The Illamasqua intense lip-glosses are essential in my make-up kit. This is one of my favourite items in the collection due to it’s highly pigmented formula and high shine finish. I love the shimmer infused in the pigment which makes those lips pop instantly! Try layering ‘Touch’ on top of Maneater lipstick included in this collection for a an extra powerful red lip this Valentines. 
A NEW Lipliner (Shade: Feisty) £14.00
A classic red lip liner matches perfectly with Maneater. The formula of the lipliner is soft and creamy but firm enough to help you draw the perfect red lip liner ready for lipstick application! The lipliner can also be worn alone for a creamy matte red lip!
An existing Nail Polish (Shade: Throb) £14.50
A perfect cherry red shade, which will be perfect for your Valentines date! The polish has cool undertones and applies evenly in one stroke. The pigmentation is excellent with minimal drying time. 
An existing Red Lipstick (Shade: Maneater) £16.50
‘Maneater’ is a gorgeous wearable classic matte red lipstick. With a 50’s feel it provides a vintage, classy and sophisticated look to your pout this Valentines! 
Pair your red pout with a sleek cat eye & flirty lashes for a classic 
Valentine’s look that is sure to knock him off his feet! Mwah…
The collection is available now at Illamasqua stores and online.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Blood Orange

Barry M has launched new nail paints called Gelly Hi-Shine. They retail at £3.99 each, £1 more expensive than their normal “nail paints”, and there are 9 shades in total in fact I wanted shade Blueberry but it was sold out so I brought this shade instead- Blood Orange which is my idea of a perfect red, it is bright, bold and timeless!

So what’s the hype?  Basically they replicate the glossy high finish of gel manicures.  They are supposed to be 1 coaters, and there is no need for a top coat to make them have a high shine finish.

These polishes are very easy to apply with great narrow brushes, on the whole the formula is fault free and does not streak nor does it dry patchy- this shade  did have  a good coverage in two coats but in some lights you can see my natural nails so make sure you apply three coats.

I want them all now…
